Show Closed This production ended its run on Feb. 22, 2015 An ordinary man who did extraordinary things. Tom Dugan’s spy thriller Wiesenthal officially opens at the Acorn Theatre at Theatre Row on November 5. Dugan also makes his New York stage debut starring in the show, which is based on the true story of Simon Wiesenthal. Nicknamed the “Jewish James Bond,” Wiesenthal escaped death at the hands of Hitler’s S.S., lost 89 family members, and devoted more than six decades to bringing Nazi war criminals to justice. Part memoir and part spy thriller, Dugan’s play introduces us to Wiesenthal on the day before his retirement as he welcomes his final group of Americans to his office in The Jewish Documentation Center in Vienna.
